Tidings Of Christmas Joy

Hiya, bunnies! I have much apologies today! I have been having the worst tech week ever! I got an early Christmas gift of a new video card, but then it didn’t fit in my computer and the power supply wasn’t right and blah blah blah. Then my monitor completely died on me! And then I got a severely bad cold on top of that! But I’m getting better, and I have a new monitor now [still waiting on the power supply for the new card!], but I do have to apologize if this picture isn’t quite right because everything’s a little iffy on the machine right now. 🙂

Style - Tidings Of Christmas Joy

If you haven’t done the 20Twenty round yet, you need to! It ends on the 9th and you really need to get some goodies! Remember that 20Twenty is an in-store event, there is not one main location, and the items offered are 20% off for the duration of the event. Evie’s Closet is participating and that is where I got this cute cute Ysara outfit from! I felt that the dress and mask just screamed “Christmas faerie!” so I had to pair it up with some old wings. But it’s really adorable, right? It’s not rigged for any particular body, but I made it fit on my Maitreya body.

Truth is out at We Love Roleplay this month with the Solace hair. I am so in love with it! You have the option of wearing it with bangs or without [I’ve gone without here because of my mask] and there is a very cool piece of jewelry that goes with it. You have to buy it, that’s all I’m saying!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

Instant Gratification

Hi there, bunnies! I don’t know about you guys, but I don’t lose weight easily at all. AT. ALL. I hate getting on the scale after I’ve been so so good and not seeing a big difference! I’m all about instant gratification when it comes to my health because hey, who doesn’t want to feel and look amazing instantly after putting in hard work, am I right? But luckily in SL, instant gratification happens very easily!

Style - Instant Gratification

Paper Arrow Co. is at N21 this round with the Lazy.Jogger pants! They are so super cute and comfy! If you really haven’t checked this store out because they weren’t fitting to your mesh body, it’s time to try them out because they’re doing Slink and Maitreya versions now! Yay!

Have a great day!

Don’t You Know That You Gotta Refuel?

Hello, bunnies! You know, when you’re out and about doing a lot of shopping, you have to remember to eat to keep your energy up! Luckily for me, downtown Bluebonnet has a lot of places to eat. Noodles, anyone?

Style - Don't You Know That You Gotta Refuel?

I headed out to The Chapter Four and picked up the High Waist Shorts and Long Sleeve Tee set by Amitomo. There are 4 sets and each one has 2 different colored shirts and shorts. They are only in standard sizes and although I am wearing it with my Maitreya mesh body, I had to do a little shape modding to truly make it work on me in the shorts department. The top, however, fit just fine! And the Ursula bag from C’est La Vie that is also at The Chapter Four works really well with this outfit.

Collabor88 is really awesome this month and that’s where I got the Marta skin by Glam Affair. This skin is really super pretty, although I’m not quite sold on it on my face just yet. I think I miss my button nose! But the lips on this skin [when I’m not smiling, anyway] are just gorgeous. Each skin tone comes with a bunch of lipsticks and eye makeups, so it really can’t be beat.

Ingenue is also at Collabor88 with the Astrid heels. For the fall season, I just adore little ankle boots! I find them quite versatile to wear with so many things!

Now that lunch is over, it’s time for more shopping!

Chillin’ With The ‘Mingoes

Hey, bunnies! So I’ll admit that I’m not a super fashionista or anything on a daily basis. I’m just not. But when we’re on vacation, it gets worse because I just want to wear things that are cute and comfy! And, you know, things that I can wear when hanging out with people – or ‘mingoes!

Style - Chillin' With The Mingoes

Pixicat has the cutest item for Fifty Linden Friday this week! The Vibrant Vest in the Aztec print is awesome! This is not something that I’d usually wear [vests kind of remind me of middle school], but the moment I saw it, I fell in love. The “shirt” part is able to be tinted, but if you don’t want to wear it, you can put your own top underneath. I’m guessing applier tops would work best. It’s only $50L today, so give it a try!

Happy shopping!

Got To Kiss Myself, I’m So Pretty

Do you ever just have REAL trouble taking a picture of yourself? I was asked to send a headshot in for something I’ll be blogging in the future and it filled me with dread. I am the WORST at taking headshots of myself! I can do a regular blog picture all day, every day [well, if I’m not lazy], but headshots confuse me. I stomped around yelling about how I looked stupid. Luckily, Truth has a terrific new hair for Uber that has a nice starry barrette, so it helped a whole lot to make me pretty!

Got To Kiss Myself, I'm So Pretty

Esther is new for Uber and I adore it! The hair is actually pretty long, past the chest, but I couldn’t fit it all in to this particular picture. I just love the hair clip because I’m a sucker for anything with stars and any kind of hair accessory. The Uber theme this month is “Celestial,” so of course it goes perfectly with the theme!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Can Heather find a job that won’t interfere with her tan?

I know, I already did a post today, but Berry did a Yearbook Smile Challenge today that I couldn’t resist! Of course, if I’d ever looked this pretty in any of my RL yearbook pics, I think I would have dropped dead. So that’s the first rule of taking a good yearbook picture, I guess. Just be good looking already. *laughs*

Challenge - Yearbook Pic

I get asked a lot why I smile in so many of my photos. The simple answer is that I’m happy and that tends to come out in my pictures. But truthfully, it’s more that I cannot stand photos where people are just staring dead-eyed even though it’s supposed to be a photo that conveys some kind of emotion. There are, of course, photos where a just neutral face is appropriate and that’s fine. But if you’re taking a picture where you’re supposed to be jumping for joy and yet you look like you’re just waiting for your car’s oil change to finish up, well… that doesn’t make for a very good picture in my opinion.

I don’t really like any of the mesh mouths out there. I find that mostly they make people look like there’s a good chance that person cannot put on their own shoes. And as I like my face, I haven’t bothered with mesh heads. The regular avatar face is NOT the easiest to work with and the emotes we can do with our faces aren’t always great, but you can make it work. I have a different shape for smiling. The eyes are bigger and wider, the cheeks are slightly more puffy, and I messed with my mouth while smiling until it became something I could work with. I do use a little bit of Photoshop, too, because my teeth tend to poke out a little bit in the corners when I smile. I will say that the Pink Fuel skin I’m wearing smiles really well. I’ve had other skins where no matter what I did, the smile never looked right. So if you have that problem, it really just might be your skin and not your shape.

Thanks for a fun challenge, Berry!!

Floating Along

Okay, so, here’s the thing. In my RL, I’m ridiculously scared of balloons. Not so much the balloons themselves, as I think they are pretty, but the very fact that they can pop just freaks me out! I have a phobia of sudden, loud noises. I know, I know. It’s weird. So the chances of my carrying a big bunch of balloons like this in RL? Slim to none, and if I did have to, I’d be holding them like a bomb. But in SL, I get to enjoy the pretty balloons, so that is awesome!

Style - Floating Along

You know what else is awesome? FaMESHed! Zaara is out at FaMESHed this month with the Kalika tank top and the Elina shorts. I am in LOVE! Especially with the shorts, because I’ve been looking for new shorts that aren’t denim and/or don’t show off too much booty crack.

Do you ever go out to the Woodland Treasures gacha event? You totally should, especially if you’re a kid av or you like super cute decor items. Pita Pocket is out there with their Little Carny Party set. There are several adorable items in the set, all carnival themed, but I’m just using the Balloon Cart for this picture. I know people are getting gacha burn-out, but this is so precious, you need at least a few items!

Happy shopping!
